The Dodgers have started the San Diego series with a bang. There was a benches clearing fracas following a grand slam home run from Austin Barnes in the top of the first inning. The Dodgers have already put on a show with the bats. They’ve now hit over 50 home runs in the month of June which is a new franchise record for long balls. They’ve also set a record for hitting grand slams this season. One of those 50 home runs was a grand slam home run from Austin Barnes earlier in the evening.
Austin Barnes is having the game of his life. After hitting his first career grand slam home run in the top of the first, he added a three-run home run in the top of the sixth as well to give him seven runs batted in on the night.
The Dodgers have already hit five grand slams this season. Joc Pederson, Cody Bellinger, Corey Seager, and Chris Taylor, have all hit grand slams in 2017. This is Barnes first career grand slam and first career MLB multi-homer game. The Dodgers are currently leading 10-1 over the Padres in the seventh inning.
